Hello Grief 

Hello Grief provides information and resources about grief in order to break through the current culture of avoidance that surrounds death and loss. Instead, Hello Grief addresses bereavement head-on for those who are helping others cope, as well as those who need support on their own personal journey with grief. In a world that doesn’t get it, we do.

SLAP’D (Surviving Life After a Parent Dies)

SLAP’D aspires to provide teens who have lost a parent with an online community of support to help ensure that they are not alone, to inspire hope, and to provide them with important resources throughout the grieving process.

SLAP’D exists as a social media site for teens 13 and older (or younger than 13 with adult supervision) who have lost a parent to find hope and connection through shared experiences, and aims to ensure that no teen ever has to experience their grief alone. SLAP’D offers our users articles, advice forums, an ask-an-expert column staffed by bereavement professionals, and connections to other resources for grieving kids and teens.

Too Damn Young

Too Damn Young was founded with the sole purpose of letting any grieving teenager know they are not alone. At the basis, they want to be a resource. Their expert articles, personal accounts, fiction, poems, and other creative outlets are all intended to be relatable and informative content.

“To borrow from something someone once told me, we’re an army of grievers. Our journeys are all different, but our starting points are all the same. We’ve all lost someone we love. Now we’re left to figure out a new normal. Too Damn Young is a hand to hold while we figure this out.”
